Home Depot Accused of Violating Civil Rights of Job Applicants with Criminal Records | All Of Us Or None


 

HOME DEPOT ACCUSED OF VIOLATING CIVIL RIGHTS OF JOB APPLICANTS WITH CRIMINAL RECORDS
Two African-American men have filed charges of discrimination against
Home Depot alleging that the company’s rejection of their job
applications based on their past criminal records violates federal
civil rights laws forbidding race discrimination because the practice
has an adverse impact on African Americans and Hispanics.  The charges
were filed with the New York office of the Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission (EEOC).   The charging parties are being represented by the
Legal Action Center (www.lac.org),  Outten & Golden LLP (www.outtengolden.com), the National Employment Law Project (www.nelp.org) and Goldstein, Demchak, Baller, Borgen & Dardarian (www.gdblegal.com).
